Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Dictionaries Teacher Stats

What do you want returned if two or more Teachers Tie with the most number of Classes?

One or more teachers may tie with the most number of courses,. I know what I would do, in this situation, but what will your program accept? If it will only accept a string the answer is different that if it will accept a list or dictionary,.

Can I assume the for this example only one teacher will have the most number of classes?

The challenge expects a string as output, with the name of one teacher. So it's fine to make the assumption that there will not be a tie for the purposes of this challenge.
